STEP 1: TRIM THE HAIR
When it comes to shaving the head, it is easiest if the hairs are trimmed all the way down with a trimmer first. We would therefore always recommend that you use a trimmer as the first step against a bald head. The shorter you trim the hair, the easier the subsequent shave will be.STEP 2: HOT SHOWER
Just like when you shave your face, it's a good idea to soften the skin with warm water - or even better: a warm shower. This opens the pores, softens the skin and minimizes friction and the risk of irritation. If you've just trimmed, a bath will also remove excess hair so it doesn't get caught in the razor during the actual shave.STEP 3: EXFOLIATE
While you are standing in the shower, you can use a mild face scrub on your head. This removes all dead skin cells and prevents clogged pores and ingrown hairs. Take it easy and don't scrub hard to avoid unnecessary irritation.STEP 4: APPLY PRESHAVE
You can advantageously use a Preshave before your shave. A Preshave gives your razor a much better glide over the head and creates a protective barrier between the blade and the skin.STEP 5: APPLY PRODUCT
Whether you choose to use a shaving foam from a 'can' or make your own shaving foam from a shaving cream or shaving soap is a matter of taste. The most important thing is that you use a good product that ensures the razor glides well.
First, splash a bit of lukewarm water on top of your press garden and then apply your favorite shaving foam.
We have very good experiences with Proraso's red shaving cream
for head shaving. The shaving cream is fat, creamy and delicious and provides very good protection during shaving. You can of course use it with a shaving brush, but you can also easily squeeze a dollop of shaving cream into the palms of your hands and lather the cream directly onto the wet scalp (Note: It is important that you have splashed lukewarm water on the scalp first before applying the shaving cream).
